L2 Talks

The L2 Talks is our way of igniting that flame so that the strands can fuel them further. Each L2 talk is short, passionate, and relevant. Check out what Learning2 Leaders have shared in years past by touring our playlist on Youtube available here.

 

Strands

A strand is a group of like minded participants who get together to inquire into an area of interest that they want to take action on in their own school. A strand topic is open-ended to invite a variety of perspectives, but isn’t too broad, looks towards the future of learning, and is relevant and timely.

Cohorts (Job-alike)

The Job-Alike Cohort Concept will be facilitated by a cohort facilitator to establish those vital personal connections. The cohort facilitator will promote sharing and collaboration in the cohort so that cohort members can discuss topics relevant to  their positions.
